Comments
Comments: It was a wonderful day to be doing the out/back - great views, fast trail conditions and low winds. I wore Hillsound Trail Crampons and these provided excellent traction for these conditions. It was a little chilly (1 above zero) at the start but warmed up nicely to the 20's in a few hours. Very fun to slide down East Osceola on way back out.
